The aetiology of the chronic inflammatory bowel diseases -- Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis -- is still enigmatic. The therapeutic approach has therefore traditionally focused on anti-inflammatory principles, including corticosteroids and aminosalicylates. Since a significant proportion of patients is steroid-dependent or refractory and because of the problematic side-effects of long-term systemic steroids, active immunosuppression has gained acceptance in the field. The classical immunosuppressants azathioprine and 6-mercaptopurine have long been evidence-based in IBD, but underused. Recently, methotrexate and cyclosporine have also been proven to be effective in certain situations. Newer drugs like tacrolimus, mycophenolate and others may be similarly useful but their potential is still unclear. Finally, the immune modifiers including IL-10 and TNF-antibodies have been successfully subjected to controlled trials. Other experimental drugs discussed in this book are on the horizon. This volume is the Proceedings of Falk Symposium 119 held in Freiburg-im-Breisgau, Germany, October 3--4, 2000, and covers systematically the field of immunosuppression in inflammatory bowel diseases. It is hoped that it will further the prudent use of these drugs in the proper clinical situations by increasing our understanding of both the mechanisms of action and the clinical benefit to the patient. 255pp.N.B.Slight fade mark to base of d/j spine.

Referred to in the Bible, pictured on the wall-friezes of ancient Egyptian tombs, and a subject of fascination for generations of scientists, the tilapias (Cichlidae: Tilapiini) have featured in the diet and culture of humankind for thousands of years. The 20th century has seen their spread from Africa throughout the tropics and sub-tropics, largely for food and fisheries purposes. This book attempts to pull together our knowledge of this important group - their biology and fisheries and aquaculture - in a single volume. A succession of chapters by acknowledged authorities covers evolution, phylogenetic relationships and biogeography, reproductive biology, mating systems and parental care, diet, feeding and digestive physiology, environmental physiology and energetics, the role of tilapias in ecosystems, population dynamics and management, genetics, seed production, nutrition, farming, economics and marketing. The book is aimed at biologists, fisheries scientists, aquaculturists, and all interested in aquatic ecology. 505pp.

Bellamy, Nicholas
Despite more than 50 years' experience with outcome measurement in musculoskeletal clinical trials, there is little conformity in the methods used, and no standard text on clinical metrology exists. This text reviews the methods used to assess the clinical efficacy of antirheumatic drugs in adult patients with musculoskeletal disease, focusing primarily on clinical rather than laboratory or radiographic measures. There are four parts: overviews of fundamental issues in clinical metrology; of outcome measures relevant to antirheumatic drugs: a review of current clinimetric practices in rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis and fibromyalgia clinical trials; and a discussion of different measurement techniques. The text is complemented by many illustrations and three appendices. This study should be of interest to all involved in evaluating treatment strategies for musculoskeletal patients, as well as those involved in the development and regulation of antirheumatic drugs. 367pp.N.B.Small fade mark at base of spine.
